“NAIS Students' University Affiliated Courses Conference was held on March 12, during which nearly 50 NAIS students delivered presentations to share their wonderful online learning experiences with courses that they took on EdX and Coursera, affiliated with some of world well-known universities, including: Harvard University, Columbia University, Yale University, Cornell University...”

 

”通过EdX和Coursera在线学习,

学生以研究为中心进行演讲分享“

 

大学附属课程分享大会为学生提供了一个非常难得的机会,通过EdX和Coursera在线学习,学生以自己感兴趣的课程为主题,进行以研究为中心的演讲分享。参加该活动的学生们一共进行了45个不同主题的演讲,并邀请了全校师生作为听众共同参与。

”根据演讲主题,

学生找到自己感兴趣的方向去规划未来学习“

 

整场活动从规则的设定开始,学校努力营造一种学术界专业交流会议的氛围。作为听众的学生们可以根据自己的喜好,聆听不同主题的演讲,接触日常课程不会涉及的学科。演讲的学生也可以在与同龄人分享专业知识和想法的收获更多演讲的经验。 对于教师和管理人员来说,可以从学生们自主选择的课程中,了解学生对哪些学科感兴趣,教师团队可以在未来的教学计划中着重强调。

 

更进一步说,学生根据其演讲主题找到自己的感兴趣的方向去规划未来学习,这有利于学生的大学申请。因为大学招生官非常重视学生的学术研究能力,自我发现和学术创新的能力。我们于2021年1月开始组织和计划此次活动,学生们于2020年秋季学期开始通过EdX和Coursera参加在线课程。这是我们举办大学附属研究课程的第二学期。除了组织安排注册和全体会议之外,大学附属研究课程的负责老师还协助学生准备演讲和集中讨论。

 

”我们发现了学生的众多兴趣

并挖掘了很多领域中潜在人才“

 

在参与课程之前,学生们会仔细阅读感兴趣的在线课程简介,依照自己的喜好和兴趣进行选课。 从体育营销到表演艺术,商业和科学,学生可以修读广泛的课程。课程难度也由学生自己选择,甚至有学生选择攻读研究生难度的课程令我们欣喜的是,我们在本次活动中,发现了学生的众多兴趣并挖掘了很多领域中潜在人才。

“当学生得到老师的鼓励和支持时,

他们可以取得惊人的成绩”

 

大学附属研究课程中,最我们欣喜的是,学生在这次活动进行自主学习自我探究。学生可以完全自己选择所报名的课程以及学习方式,从而增强了他们求知欲。

 

值得一提的是,下一阶段,我们学生将会修习大学先修课程(可兑换学分),一些学生已经提前完成了。我们从伯克利音乐学院(Berklee College of Music)挑选了一些高中生可以完成的学分课程。目前,我们还有两名优秀的学生正在进行学分制的本科音乐理论课。

 

当孩子们得到真正关心他们的教育者足够的鼓励和支持时,他们可以取得惊人的成绩。学习大学附属课程是为了给今后真正的大学学习做好衔接和过渡工作。目的是确保我们的学生在完成K-12后能取得更高的学术能力。指导学生学习大学教授制作的与大学同等难度的课程,并帮助学生获得相应完成课程证明,这就是我们要做的。

Conference Summary

 

Nikita Mamedov

 

The University-Affiliated Courses Conference is a research-centric event that provides students an opportunity to present a scholarly-guided talk on a topic of their interest, guided through EdX and Coursera online learning. Each student has ten minutes to offer an academic discussion, emphasizing individual curiosities in their education. Each speech follows with a brief two-minute period for questions from the audience members. NAIS students enrolled in University-Affiliated Studies courses presented 45 talks on a diverse set of topics, as the rest of the schools attended the series of plenary sessions as listeners.

 

 

There are multiple reasons for holding this type of event, both for speakers and listeners. First of all, we strive to create an atmosphere seen in professional conferences attended by academics and educators. From the perspective of pedagogy, it is a surreal experience for students to be in a conference-like environment, as they get to listen to whichever presentations they wish. It is a new experience that opens up various hidden curricula not seen in their daily classes. Concomitantly, students obtain public-speaking experiences while sharing their knowledge, expertise, and thoughts with their peers. For teachers and administrators, this is an opportunity to see what our students are passionate about and which subject areas we can emphasize for their future studies. More precisely, students can find their educational niche and reasons to pursue further learning based on their presentation topics, which can favor students’ university applications since higher education admission committees value enthusiasm for research, self-discovery, and academic innovation.

 

 

We began organizing and planning the event in January of 2021. The students started taking their online classes via EdX and Coursera in the Fall of 2020 semester. This is the second semester that we hold the University-Affiliated Studies program. The final push for conference preparation occurred in the two weeks before the main event. Aside from organizing and schedule the registration and plenary sessions, the supervisors at the University-Affiliated Studies courses assist students with preparing for the presentation and centralizing their conference talks.

 

All students in University-Affiliated Studies presented at the conference, as it is one (of many) requirements in the program.

 

Everything depends on the particular interests of our students. There are numerous courses available via EdX and Coursera. Students have opportunities to peruse multiple subjects and sign up for the online programs of their choice. From sports marketing to performing arts, business, and sciences, students can tackle a wide curriculum range. While some students choose to focus on lower-undergraduate-level coursework, others proceed to pursue graduate-school-equivalent courses. It is incredible to see the plethora of interests and potential talents we are developing at the NAIS.

 

The exciting element of University-Affiliated Studies courses is the fact that students follow a self-regulated learning path. While we supervise and closely monitor their progress, students have complete control over the coursework they enroll in and how they pursue it, allowing them to expand their curiosity. Likewise, it is worth mentioning that the next component is to have our students enroll in actual for-credit courses provided by universities. A few students have already done that. We have had a select number of high-school students complete for-credit classes from Berklee College of Music. At the moment, we additionally have two highly-talented middle school students that are taking their for-credit undergraduate-level music theory classes. Kids can provide stunning results when they receive enough motivation and support from those who genuinely care for their education. A university-affiliated program is a transition in a university-driven direction. The purpose is to ensure that our students succeed when they go beyond the K-12 level. Tackling college-equivalent coursework produced by professors who teach in these universities and completing coursework that earns them a university transcript is how we do that.

部分学生演讲精彩瞬间

 

G12 Richard Shen

分享课程:Cell Biology: Mitochondria from HarvardX

在这个课程中我收获到了来自Harvard的证书并且学到了更多生物知识。所学的内容比学校课程更加深奥,课程中时常有很多生僻单词和概念,教授讲课的速度有时也很难跟上。需要做很多笔记来帮助理解和记忆。我为这次Students' Conference准备了将近20页PPT,并且准备了多页的演讲稿。在演讲前一周复习巩固了所有上课内容和笔记。并且在正式演讲前进行了多次排练。

G11 Kristyn He

分享课程:Introduction to Sociology from Utrecht Uni

经过这次课程,学习到了学校里面没有的课程,对于未来选择的专业有了更深的了解,第一次系统性学习这门学科,所以受益匪浅。课程中,我最大的困难是课程每隔一段时间会有考试,还有每周都有课程的任务。

G12 Dylan Dai

分享课程:AP Microeconomics from MITx

Post High School Studies这门课让我对大学课程有了基本的了解,也让我提前感受到了大学的课程难度。同时,我还可以通过这门课提升我的自学能力。课程开始的时候我就遇到了困难,因为我之前从来没有接触过经济,连基本的概念都不知道,而且教授讲课的语速非常快,所以刚开始上课的时候很难理解,在连续看了3遍并一点一点暂停查生词后,我终于可以学懂这门课程。借着这次的演讲,我梳理了所有的知识点,将所学的内容都体现在演讲里,也让我对课程有了更深的理解。我花了五天的时间准备演讲稿和ppt,每天回宿舍后都在练习演讲,一遍又一遍地读演讲稿是件很无聊的事,但当大家在听了我的演讲后吸收学习了这些知识,我感到十分地欣慰,感觉这次的演讲是十分有意义的。
